The plans propose installing high-visibility crosswalks, pedestrian refuge islands, advance yield markings, and rectangular rapid flashing beacons (RRFB) at multiple intersections on Foothill Blvd and on MacArthur Blvd.
Notes from the meeting and preliminary conceptual plans are below.
At the September 17, 2020 BPAC meeting, OakDOT Staff Teresa Peterson and Charlie Ream presented the one systemic project and two corridor specific projects selected for HSIP Cycle 10 grant applications and solicit feedback on the project design. They requested letters of support from BPAC for each of the projects.
The three proposed projects that OakDOT will submit to HSIP are:
14th Street (Mandela Parkway to Adeline Street)
98th Avenue (Edes Avenue to MacArthur Boulevard)
Systemic application – 2-lane unsignalized intersections with pedestrian collisions
The ECAP’s vision for Transportation & Land Use is:
Integrated land use and access to safe, reliable, low-cost, high-quality mobility options for every Oaklander enable an equitable transition away from cars. Auto use is minimized, and all remaining vehicles on Oakland roads are electric.
The ECAP puts forth 40 actions across seven sectors. The main action for the Transportation & Land Use sector is to “Reduce VMT through active mobility & public transit; electrify the rest.”
